SI.com Comments on Saints turn around, Very good read, and i couldn't have summed this portion season up any better.
• Marques Colston is back. Drew Brees is back. And because they are, so too are the New Orleans Saints' Super Bowl chances. What a wild rollercoaster ride it's been down on the Bayou. From NFC favorite to 0-4, back to .500, all in a two-month span. Saints alive.

The standings in the NFC South still say the Saints are in a second-place tie with Carolina (both 4-4), a half-game behind first-place Tampa Bay (5-4). But don't believe it. A month later than expected, New Orleans has found its 2006 offense, and a bit of last year's mojo to boot.

In their four-game season-opening losing streak, the Saints averaged 12.8 points per game. In their four wins since then, they are scoring 30.5 points per game, including Sunday's 41-24 rout of the visiting Jaguars (5-3). New Orleans put up 538 yards of offense against the Jaguars' usually stout defense, including 435 yards of net passing. True, the Saints defense gave up 432 yards of offense to Jacksonville, but that's like last year's winning formula.

Even better news for Saints fans, the schedule is about to turn softer for the duration of November. New Orleans finishes this month home against St. Louis (0-8), at Houston (3-5) and at Carolina (4-4, with two consecutive ugly losses). In fact, New Orleans' Dec. 2 home date against Tampa Bay is its only remaining game against a team that currently has a winning record.
